November's meeting will focus on "success stories" of various SIG-Web

broadcast over the Internet Multicast Backbone (MBONE). (See
<> for details.)

Presentations will include:

- Benay Dara-Abrams will demonstrate Silicon Valley Public Access
  Link, the community network for Santa Clara County.

  things going on at the UCSF Center for Knowledge Management.

  providing commercial service to dial-up users.

- Steve Putz will show some World-Wide Web gateways to other
  information sources he's developed at Xerox PARC. Larry Masinter
  will demonstrate MOO-Gopher, a gopher interface from inside a mud.

  their servers and organizations.

  mail to, saying how much time you'd like and
